Gov. Matt Bevin launches contest encouraging Kentuckians to keep communities clean

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gov. Matt Bevin wants you to make your neighborhood shine.

Friday, Bevin launched his Beautify the Bluegrass initiative with a contest designed to encourage citizens to keep their communities clean.

The contest invites Kentuckians to form teams of up to 200 volunteers to clean up, or enhance, a neglected area in their community.

Projects can include picking up trash, mowing, and landscaping. Participants are encouraged to document their project to show how they made a difference.

The winning project will be announced in October, and the winners will get to enjoy a barbecue hosted by Bevin and Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton.

To apply, head to the Beautify the Bluegrass Facebook page.

Project entries are due by Sept. 20 through the Beautify the Bluegrass webpage
